Spring Brings Out the Sun and Special Events Supported by LGB

The past weekend was a busy one for LGB's Public Affairs Office, as the team attended two events in March to support the community.

Mardi Gras was the theme at First Fridays in Bixby Knolls. Folks enjoyed King Cake, beads and donned masks for the celebration.

The Solar Grand Prix held at El Dorado Park on Saturday in the 5th District was a huge success as LGB supported those students who competed in a race between sun-fueled cars.
If you would like to volunteer at Long Beach Airport at our special events, please contact the Public Affairs Office at 562-570-2678 or email lgbarpt@longbeach.gov
